UK murder suspect nabbed in Asaba

06 November 2014, 09:29

Asaba - Police Intelligence Operatives in Asaba, Delta State, have arrested a 23-year-old United Kingdom murder suspect, Jeffery Azuka Okafor, who fled to Nigeria after he alleged to have killed one Carl Beatson Asiedu.

The murder is said to have occurred in August 2009 in London.

The arrest was disclosed in a press statement by Emmanuel Ojukwu, Force Public Relations Officer from Abuja.

He said the suspect was arrested after a diligent search.

Ojukwu said the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Suleiman Abba, commended Police Intelligence Operatives for arresting the suspect.

“The IGP particularly praised the high level of Professionalism displayed by the Police operatives as well as the effective deployment of the Forces’ high tech-equipment in tracking the suspect”.

He added that despite the fugitive’s frequent change of identity and locations, the operatives were still able to keep a tab on him without raising any suspicion.

He said all the necessary procedures to enable the handover of the fugitive to the UK authorities have already been concluded.

Ojukwu said the IGP further assures the international law enforcement communities that the Nigeria Police Force would always ensure that all fugitives that show up in Nigeria would be apprehended upon request and turned over accordingly.
